John Lennon

The Beatle who also starred in things like How I Won the War.

Magical Mystery Tour (1967) -- Directed with George Harrison, Bernard Knowles, Paul McCartney, and Ringo Starr.  The Beatles' third film was a made-for-TV movie directed by the Beatles themselves, running at around an hour.  Where A Hard Day's Night was brilliant and Help! at least had some goofy fun, this one is a whole lotta dismal with the occasional brightness that makes it worth watching.  The songs, as always, are great, and the "music video" segments work the best.
